Our Dermalogica Essentials For Acne-Prone, Sensitive Skin

Despite having an abundance of skincare brands at my fingertips, I’ve always stayed loyal to Dermalogica. It is the brand that helped me through my teenage acne struggles and the one I have to thank for keeping my skin clear today. Needless to say, I was pretty chuffed to hear they were finally joining the Space NK family. Here are my foolproof favourites for anyone who has acne-prone, sensitive skin…

Dermalogica

Ultracalming Cleanser, £35.00

For A Gentle Cleanse
One of the biggest lessons I’ve learnt over the years is not to overwork my skin. Having spent years using harsh, beady scrubs that often exacerbated the problem, I now look to gentler formulas. This cleanser has been a staple in my routine for over five years. The gel-like cream not only helps to thoroughly cleanse my skin morning and night, but it also calms and soothes

Dermalogica

Agebright Spot Fader, £45.00

For Curbing Breakouts
If there’s one thing I can rely on to ease an under-the-skin spot, it’s this. Packed with salicylic acid, which is the go-to ingredient for acne-prone skin, this gel helps to clear blemishes and fade post-breakout marks too. A little goes a long way and it’s been a complete saviour for me on countless occasions.

Dermalogica

Invisible Defense SPF 30, £49.00

For Daily Protection
I’ve always struggled to find an SPF that protects without irritating my sensitive, acne-prone skin. This has often meant I’d go without. Thankfully, this weightless formula offers SPF30 protection, while green tea and a bio-active mushroom complex helps to ease redness and inflammation. As expected from the name, it has an invisible finish so it’s perfect all for skin tones.

For Much Needed Hydration
Finding a moisturiser for my oily skin was also a challenge until I discovered this weightless gel. The formula locks in moisture without feeling heavy or leaving any greasiness. Regardless of your skin type, this is a great product for the summer months as it’s cooling and sits seamlessly under makeup.

This is the product that’s made the biggest difference to my skin. The high-performance oil combines the breakout-clearing benefits of salicylic acid and the anti-ageing powers of retinol to smooth and clear your skin overnight. It’s been expertly formulated to ensure no irritation or dryness – something I can definitely vouch for.

Barrier Repair, £45.00

For SOS Moments
With the help of oat, evening primrose and vitamin C and E, this velvety balm soothes stressed-out skin and restores your skin’s barrier. I apply a thin layer all over or spot-treat irritated areas. It’s a must-have all year round, especially on cold, windy days and on my annual ski trip.
